Hornsund – 24 July 2018

The wind that blew through Hornsund last night was quite impressive and our first anchorage in Gåshamna was not really sheltered. Both anchors were on the ground but dragging as the wind picked even further up, so we had to reposition in the middle of the night, a rather lively affair with little sleep.

At least it was calm in the morning, so we could go ashore in Adriabukta without problems. Soon, however, the wind picked up again, this time from the wrong direction, so we made sure we got back to the ship before we might end up in trouble. It was rainy and foggy anyway.

Deep in innermost Hornsund, it was nice and clear, so we could enjoy some great views of the glaciers and mountains there.

An impressive collection of icebergs provided the final highlight of the day, which had been grey and wet, but still beautiful, in its very own way.
